To Request a Key

If you are a student or staff, please check with your academic department first. Those authorized to request keys for their department must start by filling out a Work Order Request Form. The following information is required:

  • A Harvard ID number
  • A non-GSD Email address
  • A non-GSD phone number
  • Whether the key is permanent or temporary, and if temporary, the duration the key will be needed
  • The specific doors for which the key should allow access
  • Authorization from the department head

You will receive an email when your key is ready for pickup. Keys may be picked up Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays by appointment.

To Return a Key

Please return your key directly to Building Services in Gund L30.

Switching Keys

Keys should never be given to or swapped with another GSD community member without following the proper procedures for returning and requesting keys. Until a key has been properly returned to Building Services, the original key holder is considered responsible for that key.

If you have a question regarding keys, please contact Barry Harper in Building Services.
